“Check the opening times.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

A very good example of a French Chateau and well worth a visit, but check the opening times, we had differing information. The guided tour was in French but the English booklet provided made it easy to follow.

“Not the best of the Chateaux”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

When we visited there was only an option of the guided tour in French so we decided to pay 12 euros for 2 of us to access the grounds. In retrospect we should have paid for the tour, even if we couldn't understand it because by all accounts it's the interior of this chateau which makes it beautiful. The exterior is not the best Chateau in the area, and the ground are very poorly kept, so not the sort you can wander around and enjoy.

There are far more beautiful Chateaux in this area, so I'd only recommend this one if you're desparate to fill an hour or two in the Loire Valley.

“Fascinating and beautiful - a gem of the Loire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2012

The chateau itself is as you would imagine a french chateau to be. Grand, imposing, beautiful. It is still to the greatest extent intact and managed by the family and it breathes history. Napoleon visited amongst many other great names up until the present day.
The grounds with lake and moat, the kitchens which would have fed so many staff and members of the household, the family library, bedrooms with some of the most advanced bathrooms of their age...
A gem.

“Amazing Library”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

This chateau wasn't particulalry interesting until we came into the stunning library, which was worth the visit in itself.
